Downtown Plan


The Downtown Plan is an update to City Centre Plan 2005 and will provide a framework to guide planning and land use management for the Downtown, Sagebrush, and West End neighbourhoods over a 20-year time frame.

The Downtown Plan will offer detailed guidance on the location and types of housing, shops, offices, and other types of development and land uses envisioned for the area. The plan will also provide direction on what parks; community facilities; plazas and public spaces; and the future road, transit, and active transportation networks within the plan area will look like.

The review and update process is now in its third phase. Earlier this year, the City engaged residents on refined development concepts for eight key opportunity sites within the plan area and strategic directions to guide policy development under five key topic areas. The feedback received has been summarized in the Downtown Plan: Phase 3 Community Engagement Summary Report.

Please see below for additional key documents from Phases 1 and 2 of the Downtown planning process, including summarized results from Phase 2 community engagement activities, the Downtown Design Charrette process, and the 4th Ave Plaza pilot project.
